Where are you getting your data? Harrisburg? Really? It's under half a million. In Pennsylvania alone, the Pittsburgh, Allentown, and Scranton areas are more populous. Columbus is misspelled. The description says within 1609 km, but the distances given are in miles. You're also missing Providence, Baltimore, Rochester, Pittsburgh, Nashville, and Birmingham. Gooby pls

Maybe he's using "urban area" figures? Though I don't know why Nashville is missing if that's the case. I assumed that was why Baltimore wasn't on here, since it gets absorbed into Washington DC.

Citypopulation.de doesn't use U.S. Census Burea Urban Area population figures. It just uses Census Bureau Metropolitan Area figures which go by county lines, causing great discrepancies between urban and urban plus a whole lotta rural that happens to fall within arbitrary county lines. It's just lazy data collection on their part. They just grab government data without any research.

But they have shiny ads. The U.S. Census Bureau and Statistics Canada don't.

Montréal is missing too. It's under 400 miles.

Baltimore is often lumped with Washington.

Richmond's UA had 953,556

Rochester's UA had 720,572

according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Richmond may or may not have passed 1 million since then.

Rochester has been dying or stagnant for decades.
